Happy summer! I'm glad to be back for one more visit to share an interview with our dear friend Jill Esbaum, who is a brilliant writer, a former Teaching Author, and a genuinely nice person. Jill lives on a family farm in eastern Iowa and is the author of nearly 50 fiction and nonfiction books for kids. Please visit her website for more information or follow her group blog, Picture Book Builders.
|Friends Do Not Eat Friends is the first book |
in Jill Esbaum's new graphic early reader series.
|Inside the first book: Thunder meets Cluck.|
Do you have a favorite piece of advice for writers?
Learn to critique your own work as an editor would. You can develop your critical eye by 1) endless reading and writing, and 2) critiquing other people's manuscripts in a crit group or some kind of manuscript exchange. There's nothing like critiquing other people's writing to help you zero in on your own problem areas.
Thank you so much, Jill! We're all looking forward to reading more of your work, and we wish you the best of luck with this series!
